sense8 Easter Eggs In The Matrix: Resurrections
1. Toby Onwumere as Sequoia , (Capheus “Van Damme” Onyango in sense8)
2. Michael X. Sommers as Skroce (Bug in sense8)
3. Eréndira Ibarra as Lexy (Daniela Velazquez in sense8)

9. Freema Agyeman as Astra (Amanita Caplan in sense8)
10. L. Trey Wilson as Hanno (Amanita’s Dad #3 in sense8)
11. The Key Shop
The key shop in which Bugs hides in the beginning of the movie while running away from the agents in the Modal is very similar to Felix and Wolfgang’s Key shop in sense8. It’s like they almost used the same setup but just added more elements. Maybe the key shop that Felix owned was an ode to the Keymaker himself to begin with.
12. Rise Of The Fall
sense8’s Lito Rodriguez’s movie “Rise Of The Fall” is running in the theatre from which Bugs and Young Morpheus come running out.
13. Moving Portals
The moving portal through which Seq communicates with anyone in the matrix (They don’t need phone booth’s anymore!) is exactly like how sense8’s visit each other! This idea for sure has to be the best influence that Lana could bring into the matrix. It felt like Capheus was visiting his friends!
14. sense8 Iconography
If that wasn’t enough there was always a tiny love left for sense8 fans in iconography scattered all through the movie.
Lexy wore the infinity 8 on her pretty much all the time when she was in the matrix.
